BLOGLULL: Sorry about that. I've been travelling, and last time I tried to post, Blogger was acting up. I was going to comment on how bizarre the coverage of the North Korea revelation was. "Shocking," "stunning," the talking heads kept saying. It was surprising that North Korea was developing nukes? Haven't we been pretty sure about that? Wasn't it announced in the State of the Union Address?

Condi Rice said it on Face the Nation this morning: it wasn't a surprise that they have a nuke program, it was a surprise that they admitted it. But few reporters seemed to understand the distinction.
